    So, if there is a short in the power supply from the wall the computer would not show any lights or that it was even plugged in.

    correct?

    Thanks;

You may need to have the DC Jack replaced. It appears to be shorted. Should only run about $50-75. Ask the cost estimate before leaving it. You may be able to shop around. Use the smaller MOM&POP shops rather than the STORES or GEEKS.

No Power battery went dead I plug it in and still no power and it will not charge battery ether??


Your power inverter most likely has died or the connection between the inverter and the wall outlet cable has come loose. Most computer retailers sell universal power adapters you can test this with.

Tip

Laptop will not turn on, laptop will not power on, laptop will not start


Make sure your laptop battery has a charge. Plug it into the wall outlet for 30+ minutes and then try powering it on. When you plug it into a power source, usually the laptop will have a light indicating that it is charging. Look for a light. If the light does not light up, try a different wall outlet. <br />If it still does not charge, you may have a bad power cord, a bad laptop battery, the wall outlet may be bad or the laptop itself is damaged and will need to be serviced by a technician or replaced.<br /><br />Through the process of elimination you can narrow down possible causes.<br />-Try a different wall outlet(or by testing another device make sure the wall outlet is good)<br />-Try a different power cable.<br />-Try a different laptop battery.<br /><br />If none of the above help then you may need to have your laptop repaired(internal damage) or replaced.<br /><br />If your laptop is under warranty you should contact your laptop manufacturer or warranty policy holder to have it repaired or even replaced. <br /><br />If it is not under warranty you should look for local computer repair shops or technicians. <br /><br />-G33k<br />

My dell laptop dont turn on


Is there a green light on your power supply that plugs in the wall? If not, the power supply is dead or there's a problem on the motherboard.
To troubleshoot, unplug the laptop from the power supply, unplug the power supply from the wall. Now, plug the power supply into the wall, you should see a green or blue light. If there's a plastic spot for the light but no light is coming on, replace the power supply - better to try a known working on before spending the money on a new replacement first.
If there is a light, plug it into the laptop. If the light goes out when you plug it in, there could be a motherboard problem and the board needs to be replaced or the power jack is damaged and you need a professional to replace it.
If the light is on the whole time, but laptop does not turn on, this could also mean that the board is still bad.
Regardless if it doesn't power up with a good power supply it is usually a motherboard problem and the board needs to be replaced.
Check with dell to see if its under warranty and they will send the parts needed and a tech to replace if it is. You can also ask about purchasing a warranty so your money is better spent to keep your laptop alive and put it towards something useful for the lngevity of the system instead of just paying for the part and a tech.

Will not power up. Green light on power source


Red battery light means battery is charging. It should start up even if battery is low. Try pressing on the area above and to the right of the power button, while you are pressing the actual power button.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Lenovo R61 Dead


The power supply in most computers has a fuse, either internal or external, that can blow without you noticing. Basically, you've been on battery operation this whole time, and the battery's finally gone dead.
It will be necessary to open the case and examine the power supply section. It may be possible to replace the fuse yourself, but any operation of this nature that involves opening the case will void any warranty you may have.

Won't turn on


how old is the system
could be your internal plug for ac may have become lose from plugging and unplugging
or you may just need a new ac cord
try moving it around where it plugs into the laptop if you get a brief connection then it probably is the connection inside the laptop they can be replaced
